Nau mai, haere mai and welcome to our website and school!

St Pius X School is a Catholic school situated in the suburb of Melville in Hamilton near Waikato hospital where a number of our parents work. The school is behind the Church in a back section with excellent grounds. Our school is often referred to as a country school in the city. 

St Pius X School was founded in 1958 by the Mission Sisters and caters for both boys and girls from New Entrants through to Year 8. 

The school is multi-cultural and we are enriched by at least 14 different cultures. We have a very good ESOL programme with experienced staff in this area.

The maximum roll is 200. We have reached our maximum if you are wanting to enroll your child at our school then it would be wise to enroll early. 

One of the strengths of our school is its community feel. The staff know all the children and there are often whole school activities such as singing, prayer assemblies and fitness. 

We are a welcoming school and encourage parents and parishioners to be involved where possible. We are proud to be Catholic. We start each day with prayer and the Religious Education programme is taught from Years 1-8. The gospel values and the values of our Founding Order are an integral part of our school. 

Our mission statement sums up for us what we are about for our students  'To learn love, To Learn Wisdom, The Way We Are.
